The Ray-Ban Clubmaster sunglasses line came out in the 80′s and are based on the popular 50-60′s browline style of eyewear (as seen on Colonel Sanders and Malcolm X). Proven to be timeless, a pair of Clubmaster sunglasses will greatly compliment your skinny tie this fall.

Ray-Ban Brad Sunglasses

ray-ban brad sunglassesWhile we’re crazy about the classic styles of Ray-Ban, we’re also always eager to see some new models emerge. New for this fall are the Ray-Ban Brad Sunglasses shown above in dark grey frames with grey gradient lenses. The gummy textured frames feature a distinct double brow bridge bar and 100% UV protection. Styled in somewhat of a cross between the Wayfarer and the Aviator, these slick shades will set you back around $109.

Ray-Ban New Wayfarer w/ Rubber Finish

A bit smaller than the famous Ray-Ban Wayfarer, the New Wayfarer is an equally stylish set of shades with a tighter fit. While they come in various colors and options, the black rubber version stands out from the crowd with it’s matte finish. Not only do they look cool, but they are extremely light and stay put on your face (even if you’re moving around or sweating). While each of the four pairs of Ray-Ban’s I own all look great, these are definitely the most comfortable.
